no..that wasnt balance point, the bike was actually falling backwards it seemed. i guess it was it. but my god...i was waiting for my bike to scrap, i seen guys at balance point and i know for a fact they werent that high. the bike just slowly was creeping backwards. with ZERO throttle. not some...but none. the thing you do when you panic from going to high. yah. it didnt phase the bike at all. hahahaa

it's prolly not as far back as you think it was. if you had a pic of it you would see what i mean. scrape the pipe on that bad boy, that's waaaayyyy back there.

nioce work tho, keep up the practice. that feeling you got, is the bike in BP. you'll get used to it.

i guess so. i was sitting down in 2nd. i have a tank mount camera on my bike. and when i do wheelies on that, and pass objects like bridges or telephone poles. you can tell its at about 80 degrees from the ground. and from seeing pics of other people, thats balance point. as im seeing your sig right now ceph, thats about how high i get my wheelies. this one was just way high...coaster high. ahhahaa. im getting so comftorable now. i guess this was another break through. im just kinda learning (sad to say) to shut off my brain and have no fear...just wear your gear. ha. annnywho. i guess with more practice it will come. not bad for someone who's been ridin only 5 months :) IN TOTAL

it felt scary, and normally when it does that. i let off the throttle. and then it comes down a lil, then i give it more. then it comes back, and i normally let off again. this time. nothing happened. it slightly went back farther. it was def. on the back end of BP. hehee.

damn ceph, you left me in the dust since i havent ridden in a year and a half!! dont worry, when i get another 600rr, id be rockin it like that!!

and yeah, for most people, what youre showing is a 12, but that is a balance point for 1-2 mph.

damn you!!
